External USB Kit Supports Numerous Sensors

External USB Kit Supports Numerous Sensors
Futek Inc.

Compatible with various sensor types including: strain gauge sensors, amplified output sensors, rotary sensors with encoder, and any other analog sensor, the new USB520 External USB Kit module eliminates the need for power supply and display equipment. The module is supplied by PC power through a USB Cable, providing excitation voltage for the sensor. The analog output voltage of the sensor is then digitized and processed by a microprocessor using an integrated 24-bit ADC. The on-board USB device allows the microprocessor to communicate with the PC by means of the USB link. For more details, visit http://www.futek.com/usb520/overview.aspx
